1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT turbo cummins diesel
Great!!! More Great!!! Most Great!!!
Front end problems in steering column. Warranty replaced entire camber problems at 50,000 miles. No other problems have arisen in the 4 years of ownership.
Excellent vehicle. Super power for towing. It doesn't even feel like you have a trailer behind you. The truck out performs any 4 wheel drive vehicle I have ever owned. It's reliability out ranks all others. I can only add that Dodges Cummins Diesel is a sure bet for gas mileage, low maintenance, and smooth riding. The quad cab is roomy for all errands, and great for the child and dog!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Our 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT, Laramie has 87,000 miles on it. We use it for heavy towing of livestock in a 16 ft. trailer. Recently we have experienced a failure in the diesel fuel shut-off solenoid, ($600 to replace), the right front wheel bearings went out, the bearing race froze to the hub. The Dodge dealership we had it towed to has done all the maintenance on it and they said this "happens sometimes" ($ l,000) and now it's a month later and we have a major squeal in the engine compartment that appears to be the water pump going out. The vehicle is diesel and does an excellent job of towing, but I'm beginning to wonder about the Dodge reputation for quality.
